Time to finally announce the big project I've been working on for the past several weeks - Sector Disk!

Sector Disk is a platform where users can own the individual, physical sectors on a 3.5" 1.44MB disk and write whatever they want to to them for people to see! :p It's like a message board on a floppy disk!

I'm officially accepting public signups starting now and accounts will officially go live starting TOMORROW @ midnight May 30th (UTC)

Please join! :D

(It's either a floppy disk message board or the world's worst cloud storage solution. You decide!)

@jebug29 this is a thing of brilliance and beauty. What artful 1337ery!
💾 😍💾🤟

@jebug29 <3 - I fellded asweep on Sofa 😴; just putting self in more appropriate sleep conducive place... I will be exploring 🧑‍🚀 the disc 💾realms o Jesse on the morrow - looking forward to staking claim to disk turf 👾

@jebug29 my God, it's so similar to a thing I'm doing but yours is way more aesthetically awesome. I love it!

@tomasino haha thanks! It took almost an entire month's worth of coding @ v @ so I hope a lot of people get excited about it and join!

I want to see if anyone will collaborate on the whole-disk visual and maybe make something really cool d: I want to see another computer club out there fundraise enough to buy a bunch of sectors on it LOL

Or even an animated sector that advances frames every day! That'd be cool :>

@jebug29 here's the start of the thing that I'm working on (with some help from tidleverse irc peeps in various branches).

@tomasino That's so cool! I actually was thinking about doing something like that but ultimately decided on the floppy-sector thing.

Let me know when it's ready and I can join!

@jebug29 it'll be taking a back seat for me for a few weeks while i get all these work projects off my plate. I'm getting swamped, sadly.

@tomasino Oh no! That's understandable, though. Keep powering through it; you'll get there when you get there ✊

@tomasino (whoops I meant to use 💪 but forgot what it was called)

@jebug29 while it would be cool to see #demoscene productions on this like f.e. a #128kIntro, I can also see people misusing this interesting initiative to add f.e a bootsector virus.

@FiXato That's why I took the boot sector for myself LOL

I would love to see what people might do on it though :p If someone does write an interesting enough program that could run as an x86 boot program, I'd definitely put it in the boot sector.


@snowdusk You should join!! Build a Wasabi sector or two! :p

@jebug29 cool!!! OK lemme read up on your new witchery first!!! 🧹🔥 LOL this is really awesome! You are a genius! 🤓❤️
